BENEFITING: Tarrant County Youth Collaboration

EVENT: BMW Dallas Marathon 2016

EVENT DATE: Dec 11, 2016

THE STORY:

Dancing Classrooms North Texas’ mission is to build social awareness, confidence and self-esteem in children through the practice of social dance. The maturity necessary to dance together fosters respect, teamwork, confidence and a sense of joy and accomplishment, which we hope to bring to every child. While Dancing Classrooms has been hailed as an effective program for teaching social dance, the program provides many other benefits. Dancing Classrooms is about creating an atmosphere which allows students who are typically introverted and reserved, to step out and shine. It focuses physical energies and increases health through the joy of movement. It builds self-esteem and interactive social skills as it improves confidence and children’s ability to relate to others. Through standards-based, in-school residencies, DCNT uses a curriculum-based teaching approach to achieve social, emotional and physical development within 5th and 8th grade students throughout North Texas’ public, private and charter schools. While the school funds 50% of the program costs, DCNT raises the additional 50% of funding from individual donors, grants, and fundraisers now serving more than 140 classrooms and over 6,000 students annually. All funds raised go directly to supporting new and current participating schools.
